En Ergo Programme
The "En Ergo" care service was created in 2018 and trains staff to provide home care to people with severely limited mobility. It provides significant support to paraplegic and quadriplegic people and their families and at the same time creates jobs. The care service is offered daily, across Cyprus.
The project is subsidized by the European Social Fund, and the initiation and operation of the project was made possible with the financial support of the Bank. The successful implementation of the project is undertaken by the Cyprus Paraplegics Association, at the initiative of the Ministry of Labour, regarding coverage of the needs of the association’s members, for social integration, independent and dignified living.
En Ergo is supported and managed by a team of experienced professionals. It fosters a culture of fairness and responsibility, supported by strong policies, processes, and development tools. It has zero-tolerance against discrimination, harassment, or unfair treatment.
En Ergo annually has:
- 106+ carers across Cyprus (68% being women)
- 180.000+ hours of care
- 630+ cases where psycological support is provided
- 100+ calls via the on-call line which operates daily
